World T20 - 28th match, Group 2

Australia v India

India won by 73 runs

Brad Hodge has the ball already.

Another opinion on the team selection.. Dhairyesh Kanan: "The purpose of playing Rahane can be two fold here. He could also play in place of Yuvraj if Yuvi doesn't find form! Also, Rahane gets a match practice. Master stroke by Indian captain!"

Also read this interesting piece by Sidharth Monga on the trend of certain bowlers wearing half sleeve shirts.

Shawn: "So instead of giving Dhawan another go to increase his confidence (which has been visibly shaken recently), They 'rest' him? Well.. These are the little tricks that India miss out and regret later. "

Dev: "I don't understand why Yuvraj is given so many chances and Shikhar has been sacked. I feel that there is quite a bit of favoritism at play in chosing the team." I don't think it's fair to say Dhawan was 'sacked'. It's a dead rubber, time to give players a rest, try out Rahane.

Dave Townsend: "That cheerful chappie Faulkner dropped? If he would play as well as he talks..."

Rix: "Australia one of the worst balanced sides? Whose propaganda have you been reading? This team just thrashed SA, England and NZ in lead up series. A couple of lose losses does not change the fact that they are one of he best teams here. That's just T 20 cricket."

Toss: Dhoni has finally lost a toss! Bailey says Australia will bowl first. One change for Australia - White in for James Faulkner.

Dhoni says he too would have batted first, for it gives India a chance to set a target. India have chased well. Two changes for India - Shikhar Dhawan gets a rest and Ajinkya Rahane comes in. Mohit Sharma takes Mohammad Shami's place.

Baily still said "it's a very important game for Australia." For a team that has been knocked out you may wonder why, but the intent is to leave Bangladesh on a high.

Prasanna S: "What a horror for Australia, to play 2 dead rubber games, hope this will help their quest to invest more in quality spinners which will be a key to win in these conditions, not sure why their best spinner Lyon is not in the T20 plans."

Sandeep Hans: "Where is Steven Smith? He is a natural for T20s and a leg spinner. This WT20 is best for spinners, especially leg break and googly bowlers."

What should have been the biggest drawcard of the weekend has been reduced to a dead rubber. With Bangladesh having lost just a few minutes ago, Australia are out of the tournament. India are already through to the final four so for them it's a chance to finish on top of the group. That's what's in it (or not) for India and Australia today.

Read the preview of this game before we get on the toss.

Mark: "India should increase Australia's woe and solidify even more their status as favourites to win the tournament. Probably the best balanced side in the competition against one of the worst balanced. Australia's one hope is to win the toss and chase and, even then, it probably won't be enough. India should feast on the Australian variations of medium pace, while having plenty of spin and seam with which to counter."

RA Jadeja run out 3 (9m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

19.6

Watson to Kumar, 1 leg bye, another low full toss and they fail to put it away, clips the pads and rolls to the off side

Australia pulling things back in the last couple of overs but it wasn't exactly sensational death bowling. The low full tosses weren't put away and Yuvraj's fall at the start of the 20th over didn't help. But the pleasing aspect is that Yuvraj has found form and taken India to a competitive total. We don't know how bad the dew is. This promises to be a good chase. Join us shortly.

B Kumar    0* (1b)      SR Watson    4-0-36-1
R Ashwin    2* (3b)      MA Starc    4-0-36-1
